Summary
"Successful people literally see the world differently. Now an award-winning scientist explains how anyone can leverage this "perception" gap to their advantage. When it comes to setting and meeting goals, we are often susceptible to perceptual illusions: We think we are closer or further away depending on our mindset, and we might handicap ourselves by looking only at the big picture or too long at the fine detail. But as award-winning social psychologist Emily Balcetis explains in Clearer, Closer, Better, there is great power in these misperceptions--if we know how to use them to our advantage. Drawing on her own unique research and cutting-edge discoveries in vision science, cognitive research, and motivational psychology, Balcetis gives readers an unprecedented account of the perceptual habits, routines, and practices that successful people use to set and meet their ambitions. Through case studies of entrepreneurs, athletes, artists, and celebrities--as well as her own colorful experience of trying to set and reach a goal--she brings four powerful yet largely untapped visual tactics to life:"--

  • Introduction -- Seeing a new way forward -- Finding the right kind of challenge -- Plating a full plan -- Becoming your own accountant -- In sight, in mind -- Reading the room right -- Forgoing the forbidden fruit and perceiving patterns -- Getting unstuck -- Doing more by doing less, and how to think beyond today -- Showtime
  • When it comes to setting and meeting goals, there are handicaps both to seeing "the big picture" and to getting bogged down in the fine details. Balcetis believes we must learn to leverage perceptual illusions-- and to use them to our advantage. She brings to life four visual tactics that successful people use: Narrowing your focus ; Widening the bracket ; Materializing your plan and your progress ; and Controlling your frame of reference. Seeing the possibilities from all perceptions can lead to happier, more productive lives. -- adapted from jacket
